Haydn wrote most of his instrumental concertos during the 1760s, his first decade of service to the Esterhazy family.   Prince Paul Anton had hired the composer in 1761 and placed him in charge of the "Camer-Musique," which provided all instrumental music as well as secular vocal music to the court.   Haydn's duties included maintaining the instruments and music library, leading the orchestra from the violin, and, of course, supplying a steady stream of new music for the enjoyment of the Prince and his guests.
